Beauty Schools in West Virginia

How Beauty Schools Can Benefit You

Training programs in West Virginia's cosmetology schools may help you start a successful career as a hair stylist, barber, skin care specialist (also called an esthetician or aesthetician), manicurist, pedicurist, or makeup artist. In few months you could earn an associate degree as a cosmetologist.

With the exception of make up artists, most beauty professionals may need a license to start working. In most states, licensing exams are offered only to graduates of a State-licensed beauty school. These state-approved cosmetology schools give you the necessary knowledge and skill proficiency to pass the licensing exam, which can include both a written and practical component.
